Our Whitwick Day Nursery and Preschool is located in a beautifully converted primary school building in the centre of Whitwick, near Coalville.
Our nursery offers flexible sessions to provide the best childcare solutions to fit the needs of your family. Including, half days as well as full days and funded free childcare for all three and four year olds up to 22 hours, all year round. Feel free to ask our nursery management team about Childcare Choices when you visit and we will see what childcare saving schemes you may be entitled to.
Our spacious, age appropriate playrooms and wonderfully large outdoor play area, provide the perfect balance of outdoor and indoor space that is ideal for providing the positive stimulation, social interaction, freedom and professional care that babies, toddlers and pre-school children thrive in.
We provide wholesome food each day, with a wide range of menus, checked by a qualified nutritionist. The food is prepared by our very own onsite chef and caters for all stages of weaning and to develop independence with older children, we encourage them to help themselves to the food on offer.
We also offer an all-inclusive activity programme which is delivered by our very own staff and includes Sing & Sign, Boogie Mites, this is to ensure the little ones are instantly put at ease and can benefit from the programmes daily. All our fun activities have lots of educational benefits which the children love to do throughout the week.
We keep a record of your child’s time and progress at nursery via a system called ‘Tapestry’, an online learning journal. Using hand held devices we can instantly record and report on your child’s special moments and achievements and link them into your child’s personal profile. You will be able to view the observations as a learning journey, flipping through the pages in time order, or filtering to access your favourite records.
We recommend all families looking for childcare in the area come and book a personal visit where you can see our nursery and discuss the childcare options we currently have available, costings and spend time with our dedicated and knowledgeable staff.
